About VA Education Benefits
The two major education benefit programs for veterans are the Post 9/11 GI-Bill and the Montgomery GI-Bill. The Post 9/11 GI-Bill provides financial support for service men and women with a minimum of 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001. The Montgomery GI-Bill also provides qualifying veterans with educational and living expenses. Eligibility under the Montgomery GI-Bill depends on a variety of factors such as length of service, active duty, reserve duty and education level.
For further information about the Post 9/11 GI-Bill, the Montgomery GI-Bill or other VA benefits, veterans should speak with a military benefits officer or a financial aid professional.
